Today is an important day in the American holiday calendar marking the birth of Martin Luther King Jr., who fought the forces of racism, saying, "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."
Sadly the forces of hatred ended the peacemaker's life in Memphis. I would like to uphold his path of pacifism, however the hatred burns brighter than a KKK cross in America.
Today I was speaking with a white friend and said, "I have the day off."
"What? National Nigger Day?"
"What did you just say? You're Italian and none of you are white."
"You better be." Racism is something taught to us whites at an early age and this afternoon I heard a rich white woman saying, "I hate the city. It's so dirty."
She was speaking about the litter, but the filth of the races.
I said nothing, because I was trying to sell her a diamond and the best revenge was hitting her pocketbook. Money is all the rich have and I try not to hate them or white people, because there's nothing wrong with taking off the rich.
Long live the man of peace.
Even dead Martin Luther King Jr. is better company than the filthy rich.
He gave his all for the world.
